Selfies have become a popular thing to do in this technological age. People with Smartphones who take pictures of themselves or group pictures with other people are said to be taking a “selfie.” You won’t find the word selfie in the dictionary, but it is a noun that everyone under 40 years old is familiar with by now. The problem people have with taking selfies is when their arm gets in the way. After all, they have to hold the camera up in front of them with their hands and take the picture. But now this problem is about to go away with the invention of the selfie button that you wear around your wrist.
The wearables tech company, Misfit, has created the Misfit Flash button that you can wear like a watch on your wrists. All you have to do is press the button in the middle and it will make your Smartphone take a picture of you. The Misfit Flash Link will connect to your mobile devices through Bluetooth technology. All you have to do is download the Link app onto your smart device and then it will be able to connect to the Misfit Flash button. Future updates to this technology could also integrate the ability to tweet or send emails after you press the button. You may even see the ability to start music by pressing the button as well. This is certainly convenient for those who don’t want the hassle of opening up individual app programs to execute these functions. Of course, you will initially have to set up apps for the Misfit Flash Link, so that it will know which function to execute upon the push of the button.
Now you might think that the Misfit Flash Link is silly and probably not worth the investment. However, the good news is the Flash Link is only $20 to purchase, which likely makes it the cheapest wearable on the market. Not only that, the Link app for your smart device is free to download as well. So you really don’t have much to lose by trying this product out. It certainly beats purchasing a selfie stick to take selfie photos of yourself. Many consumers find selfie sticks to be ridiculous and almost embarrassing to use in public. You don’t have to suffer through the same embarrassment because you can just purchase this Bluetooth controlled wearable instead. The only thing is this wearable doesn’t do anything else except allow you to push a big button in the middle of it. So if you are looking for a smartwatch that has more functions then this won’t be the one for you.
